Producer of high pressure aluminium die-castings
TFT has designed and built a clamping fixture for machining aluminium castings for the Automotive industry. The clamping fixture has been specially developed for a single product variant that requires machining in three different clamping orientations. The clamping fixture is easy to install, meaning that the CNC machining centre can be used flexibly.
The clamping fixture has been designed to allow easy fitting to an existing CNC machining centre. All the clamps are hydraulically operated via internal oil channels to minimise the risk of leaks. In addition, a product detection system in the jig significantly lowers the risk of errors.
